Our Top Picks

Best Overall: Vizio 75-Inch 4K UHD V755-G4

Vizio 75-Inch 4K UHD
What We Like
  • Affordable

  • DTS Studio Sound II

  • Amazon Alexa/Google Assistant compatible

What We Don't Like
  • No native voice controls

The Vizio V755-G4 offers the best balance between picture, performance, and price. This TV gives you stunning 4K UHD resolution with Dolby Vision HDR support for super-detailed images. The SmartCast home menu places all your favorite movie and music streaming apps all in one place for streamlined browsing. It also features Chromecast built in so you can stream directly from your computer, smartphone, or tablet. If you use Mac or iOS computers and devices, the TV supports AirPlay 2 connectivity so you can share photos, videos, and more with family and friends. 

You can connect your Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant device for voice controls and to better integrate your TV into your smart home network. The Quick Start Mode allows you to automatically turn on your TV with a voice command or by tapping the Cast button on your remote. The built-in speakers feature DTS Studio Sound II to produce a virtual surround sound listening experience when streaming movies, shows, and music.


LG 65

  • Stunning black levels

  • Excellent contrast

  • Vivid colours

  • Apple AirPlay 2 support

  • Expensive

  • Limited streaming services

  • Voice assistant isn't as powerful as Alexa or Google

Although LCD technology is getting better all the time, there’s still nothing that compares to OLED when it comes to delivering amazing contrast ratios with obsidian-deep blacks. And LG still makes some of the very best OLED panels out there, especially when you consider how affordable its C8 series TVs are.

Not only does OLED give you a great picture, but the technology lets manufacturers create amazingly thin displays, and with its bezel-less tenth-of-an-inch thick screen, the C8 is as much of a work of art as it is a television. It’s so thin, in fact, that you’ll need to be careful when you set it up, as it bends more easily than you’d expect.

You also get intelligent voice control and access to a whole ecosystem of major streaming apps, thanks to LG’s ThinQ smart TV platform. There's Dolby Vision and HDR10 for stunning contrast and color performance, and Dolby Atmos sound; you get a surprisingly solid cinematic experience without needing to add a soundbar, although thanks to an HDMI ARC port and optical audio output, it’s really easy to connect it to your own home theatre sound system, too. 

Best 75-Inch: Sony XBR75X900F

Sony 75

  • Very bright screen

  • Android TV provides versatile smart TV features

  • Attractive design

  •  Expensive

  • Sluggish user interface

Sony’s Bravia TVs have had a long reputation for being premium sets, and the newest 75-inch Bravia 4K keeps the trend going. It offers a great 4K UHD picture with a minimalist aesthetic rarely seen among LED panels, making it look more like a museum piece than a TV. Instead of the more common plastic black frame, Sony has surrounded this screen with brushed black metallic bezels, so all your attention stays focused on the display. 

This isn’t an OLED set, but in true Bravia form, it’s as close as LED technology can get, offering deep blacks and rich colors, courtesy of Sony’s proprietary X1 Extreme chip and full-array local dimming. It’s also really bright even by LED standards. There are also 4 HDMI inputs and three USB connections, including support for USB 3.0, meaning you can easily stream 4K video right from an external SSD.

The smarts in Sony’s Bravia sets are backed by the powerful Android TV platform, offering you access to one of the largest collections of apps available for a smart TV, including not only apps for streaming services like Netflix and Hulu, but also a wide variety of gaming and utility apps that can be found on the Google Play Store, and the ability to stream from your laptop, tablet, or smartphone using Google Chromecast. There’s also an included voice remote that lets you call up Google Assistant with the press of a button, or you can use a Google Home smart speaker to call out commands hands-free. 

Best 65-Inch: Samsung QN65Q6FN

  • Extremely natural colours

  • 4K Upscaling

  • Apple AirPlay and TV+ support

  • Expensive

  • Not as good as OLED

  • Bixby voice assistant is limited compared to Alexa and Google

Samsung’s QN65Q60 sits in the sweet spot for 65-inch screens, thanks to its patented "Quantum Dots" technology that offers 4K Ultra HD resolution in a bright and extremely color-rich picture — billions of shades of color, in fact.

There’s support for HDR10+ here, but Samsung takes it up a notch with its own "Quantum HDR 4X" that provides even deeper contrast, with darker shadows and brighter whites than most other LED TVs, plus an anti-reflective screen so you won’t need to worry about glare. There’s also a two-speaker 20-watt sound system that supports Dolby Digital Plus, along with Bluetooth support so you can directly pair up a set of wireless speakers or headphones. 

Samsung uses its own smart TV platform, along with its own Bixby voice assistant; while not as sophisticated or full-featured as Alexa or Google Assistant, it gets the job done. The other smart TV features also lead the pack with access not only to mainstream services like Netflix and Hulu, but it's also one of the first smart TVs to embrace the Apple ecosystem, including AirPlay 2 video streaming from an iPhone or iPad, plus Apple’s TV app that lets you access iTunes movies, TV shows, and Apple TV+.

Best 55-Inch: TCL 55S425

TCL 55

  • Inexpensive

  • Built-in Roku TV Support

  • Great 4K picture quality

  • No voice assistant

  • Basic remote

  • Lower maximum brightness

If you’re looking for a more medium-sized TV, TCL’s 55-inch TV offers a nice balance of price and performance, with impressive 4K UHD picture quality and built-in support for Roku TV.

With the TCL55S425, you get 4K UHD with full HDR10 quality, which means strong dynamic contrast and good color performance, and the Roku TV feature lets you access a combination of over 500,000 movies and TV shows from a wide variety of streaming services, including Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, YouTube, iTunes, Apple TV+, and Disney+. 

Although TCL doesn’t include a voice assistant here, you do get integration with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, so if you have an Amazon Echo, Google Home, or other Alexa-compatible speaker in your home, you can easily call out voice commands to those in order to control what’s playing on your TV. You also get 3 HDMI 2.0 inputs, including one with HDMI ARC support, a USB port for connecting an external hard drive or media player, old-school coaxial and composite inputs, a headphone jack, optical audio out, and an Ethernet port. 

Best 40-Inch: Vizio 4K UHD V405-G9

Vizio 40-inch 4K UHD
What We Like
  • Chromecast/AirPlay 2 compatible

  • Octa-core processor

  • HDR support

What We Don't Like
  • Firmware issues

  • Wi-Fi connectivity issues

If you're looking for a TV on the smaller end of the size spectrum, but which still delivers plenty of streaming options and a great picture, check out the Vizio V405-G9. This 40-inch TV gives you all the options of its big brother, the V755-G4, with a more budget-friendly price tag. The SmartCast hub collects all your streaming apps in one place, eliminating the need to flip through multiple menus to find something to watch. 

You can connect your macOS and Windows computers or iOS and Android mobile devices via Chromecast and AirPlay 2 to stream directly from your laptop, tablet, or smartphone. The TV is built with an Octa-core processor to give it plenty of power to produce great 4K UHD resolution. It also supports Dolby Vision HDR for stunning detail and clarity. You can connect your Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, or Siri devices for hands-free voice controls.

Best Budget: Sceptre X322BV-SR

Sceptre 32

  • Extremely affordable

  • Good connectivity

  • Good quality for the price

  • No smart TV features

  • Only 720p

It’s not surprising that Sceptre is Walmart’s best-selling TV brand, since these sets are remarkably affordable, and the 32-inch model is worth serious consideration if you’re looking for a small to mid-sized TV on a budget. 

Although it’s only 720p, that resolution is matched well to its smaller 32-inch screen, so it’s reasonable considering the price. The picture quality is also impressive for an economy screen, with rich colors, a 60Hz refresh rate, and a 5000:1 contrast ratio.

There’s also a good collection of inputs here, letting you connect not only an HDMI device like a digital cable converter or streaming box—and with no smart features, you’ll likely want to do that—but there’s also a second HDMI input. Coaxial input and QAM digital tuner are also included, along with component, composite, and VGA inputs, so you can plug in older DVD players and set-top boxes, or even a laptop. There are also outputs for optical digital audio, headphones, and left and right analog RCA audio outputs for connecting external speakers.

Best Full HD (1080p): Sceptre X505BV-FSR

Sceptre 50

  • Very affordable

  • High contrast

  • Good connectivity

  • No smart TV features

  • Not 4K

If you’re looking for an affordable 50-inch TV and 4K isn’t a requirement, the Sceptre X50 provides good 1080p quality with an impressive contrast ratio for a set in its price range. The 60Hz refresh rate is backed by a MEMC 120 frame rate to give you smooth 60fps 1080p playback, and the 25,000:1 contrast means you get a nice black level. 

Although this doesn't include any smart features, at this price you can easily add your own Roku TV box or Amazon Fire TV Stick, and there's a built-in USB port to connect an external storage device to display photos or playback a folder full of music files. 

There are also enough inputs here to connect just about anything you can think of. Not only do you get three HDMI ports and the aforementioned USB port, but there are also component and composite video inputs for connecting older analog devices, plus a VGA port for a laptop or computer, and headphone and digital SPDIF audio outputs for hooking up external speakers.

Best Small TV: RCA RT1970

  • Small and affordable

  • Good set of inputs

  • Only 720p

  • No smart TV features

With so much emphasis being put on gargantuan TVs these days, it’s actually getting harder to figure out what to buy if you just want a small TV to put in your kitchen, sewing room, or workshop. RCA’s RT1970 is a great choice in this category.

Although it’s a pretty basic TV—there are no smart TV features or voice assistants—it provides a solid 720p picture quality and a built-in digital tuner. Plus at this price, you can easily afford to add your own Roku TV box or Amazon Fire TV stick if you want to turn it into a smart TV. 

There’s also a nice collection of ports on the back, which is something rare in smaller and less expensive TVs. Not only do you get an HDMI port, but also HD component inputs, a coax port backed by a digital ATSC tuner, plus a USB port, composite video, VGA, PC audio, and headphone and audio-out ports.

What to look for in a TV at Walmart

Size - When determining what size TV you should buy, first survey the size of the room. How far is the seating away from the TV? Will it be mounted or sit on a media stand? These are all factors that play into your selection. Generally, larger TVs will be pricier, but most models come in a slew of sizes so you won’t have to make sacrifices on features.

Picture quality - The primary factor in delivering optimum picture quality is the resolution. If you want the best resolution out there, look for 4K (also referred to as Ultra HD), which equals a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels. That’s roughly 4x the number of pixels in a Full HD screen. With so many more pixels crammed into the screen, your pixel density is higher, which means you see a much clearer picture with incredible detail. 

Smart capabilities - Smart TVs are almost the standard these days as streaming TV shows and movies is now the norm. Brands usually have their own proprietary interface, so play around with different ones if you can, taking note of usability. A good setup will save you valuable minutes when navigating to your favorite shows.
